- 2 medium Potatoes washed, with skin
- 1 Onion, Diced
- 1 cup Zucchini grated, packed tightly
- 1 cup Wholemeal Flour
- 1 tsp Baking Powder
- 1 tsp Garlic Powder
- 1 Egg
- 1 cup Milk
- 2 tbsp Olive Oil
- 3/4 cups Cheddar Cheese (grated)
- Grate your potatoes (with the skin on) and then squeeze out the excess starch over a bowl or in the sink.
- In a large bowl, place the potatoes along with the diced onion, grated zucchini, flour, baking powder and garlic powder. If you want to introduce other spices, you could also add paprika.
- Mix these ingredients well. In another bowl or jug whisk the egg into the milk. Pour this over the dry mixture and stir to combine. Add the shredded cheese.
- Heat the oil in a large frying pan on a medium heat. Place spoonfuls of the fritter mixture into the hot oil, and fry for 2-3 minutes on each side until they’re nice and golden. Repeat until all the mixture is gone.
- If you’re planning to eat the fritters all at once, you might want to keep the ones you’ve cooked in the oven to stay warm.
